Re: Went to see Jersey Boys ...

Having seen (and totally enjoyed) the Broadway show a few years ago, I don't plan on seeing the movie.

Frankie Valli was a performer on the Macy's fireworks show on the 4th. He sang many of the great Four Seasons songs.

Casey Kasem died earlier this week at the age of 82.

Back in the mid and late 1970’s, he was part of our Sunday afternoon. When my stepdaughter and I returned home from Mass, I would cook brunch for us and my then-husband. While we ate we [more]

Re: No-no trivia

Nolan Ryan

I knew that was too easy!

Among his 7 no-nos, he had 17 strikeouts in one of his no-hitters in 1973 (he had 2 that year); 16 in 1991 and 15 in 1974.

No-no trivia

Last night Clayton Kershaw became the first pitcher in MLB history to throw a no-hitter while striking out 15 or more without allowing a walk.

Who is it? [more]

No-no; almost perfect

Clayton Kershaw struck out 15 while pitching a no hitter last night against the Rockies.

The only baserunner occurred as the result of a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in the 7th inning.
